Voting's open for Round 1: The Dolphins of Despair! We've got nine excellent entries up for inspection.

Anyone can vote! Voting is not restricted to community members or entry writers.


The Voting Procedure: There are three winners per round, whereby winners are determined by cumulative number of votes. Voting will be done by an anonymous ticky-box poll. Ties are allowed. Awesome banners will be awarded to the three winners!

The Voting Criteria: Pick your three favorites and vote for them in the anonymous ticky-box poll. If you're having trouble determining which are your three favorites, some things you may wish to consider are incorporation of the prompt, quality of writing, and originality.

The Voting Period: June 9th - June 13th. Voting closes on 11:59PM United States East Coast Time on Monday, June 13th. If you're not on United States East Coast Time, you may find the World Clock to be handy. Refer to 'New York' for current United States East Coast Time.

Note: I would have liked to make the poll open to anonymous voting, but DW apparently does not allow that option. In order to vote, one has to be logged into DW via their journal or openID.
